Xanax Withdrawal 

Xanax Withdrawal is a short 42-page book by Dr. Stuart Shipko, a clinician in Pasadena, California who has focused to some degree on tapering people off psychiatric drugs and withdrawal syndrome. He’s one of the few doctors who will give a diagnosis of withdrawal syndrome for insurance purposes or in a lawsuit. The book describes when, how and what to expect when tapering and stopping Xanax. It is available on Kindle for $4.75.
